So with erstwhile soap star Sarah Lancashire (Coronation Street) appearing in Partners in Crime, a bit of attention has been given to other former soapsters appearing in the series.
It seems that Bernard Cribbins also appeared in the soap (keep that one quiet), while another actor this series appeared in Holby City.
Screen veteran Bernard Cribbins and sultry former Holby City beauty Verona Joseph are also featured.
Cribbins has amassed a huge body of work over his long and distinguished career, but he’s also no stranger to the land of soap. In 2003, he popped up in Coronation Street to play Wally Bannister.
Meanwhile, Joseph is best known for playing feisty nurse Jess Griffin in the BBC One medial drama. Her on-off romance with older surgeon Zubin Kahn (Art Malik) had viewers on the edge of their seats.
The pair eventually got together and had a son, Paris (named after the place he was conceived – how very Victoria Beckham). But tragically, their child died, and the relationship foundered.
Oh yes, of course, that was a memorable fling, wasn’t it…?
Perhaps one of our soon to be unveiled news correspondents would be better at writing these soapy things?
